Hi there, I'm so glad to have found this site.
Earlier this year I had a smear test, my first in a few years I am sorry to say. The results were unreadable so I was invited back for a repeat.
The second showed "borderline" abnormalities and I was scheduled for a Colposcopy. During the procedure the Doctor said that she couldn't see anything unusual so she decided to take a biopsy to be safe.
I received a phonecall yesterday which frightened the life out of me.
I was told that there were abnormalties (or an abnormality, you know how your hearing goes!!) and that I should attend the clinic the following week. When I asked for more information the nurse said that she could not give anymore over the phone. She then advised me to bring someone along, when I asked her if I was to undergo a procedure, she said no, but I would need someone there with me. She then gave me the name of the Doctor and he is a Gyno oncologist.
I am terrified that I am going to be told that I have cancer. Am looking for a little advice and reassurance and other peoples experience to help me through. I am confused as to why I was not scheduled for a Loop or such other treatment?
Thanks in advance
